New Works from Molly & Jay

Molly and Jay have had a lot of fun clients and tattoo ideas come their way lately. Let’s jump right in, shall we?

This is a nautical sleeve done by Molly, on a fellow named Joe. He gave Molly a lot of artistic freedom with this one, and everyone walked away happy. The movement! The colors! Any ocean lover would be envious of this.

Molly also finished up this large plumeria piece. It begins on the client’s shoulderblade, and extends down her side. That’s some nice black and grey right there.

Jay has been busy as well, and continues to divide his time between Witch City Ink (where he works Friday and Saturday), and over at Lightwave (Monday through Thursday). This first piece – featuring dragonflies, flowers, and stars – was done at Lightwave.

Then there’s this owl! The skull makes it a little bit creepy, and the flower a little bit pretty, and we love that contrast.

Another Christmas reminder: The holiday is two weeks from today, so if you need to get a Witch City Ink gift certificate (they’re also good over at our sister shop Lightwave), we recommend doing so soon! Especially if you need us to mail it out to you. Mail runs a bit slower this time of year, so call us asap! 978.744.9393

New Work by Matt: Tiger Lily Coverup

Our go-to illustrative/painterly guy, Matt Maguire, broke out this realistic tiger lily right on the spot today. It was a fairly slow day in the shop until our new friend and client, Michelle, came by in hopes of getting some cover-up work. Initially stuck with an old tattoo of the word “Dude” upon her wrist (as in “Dude, sweet!”), Matt was more than happy to help Michelle out by rendering this flower right over it! Check out the before and after photos below to see the stencil placed over the old lettering and the final finished product with the dude out

of the picture.
